"Dr. Nathan Gartland has done an outstanding job of distilling down the important information for those considering the continuation of their learning from pharmacy school to medical school. Nathan does a fantastic job of using his own journey to take the reader step by step through the various components of applying to medical school. I've read several self-published books that fall short in terms of quality and that is not the case here! Dr. Gartland put a lot of time and attention into ensuring this resource would be valuable to the reader and assist them with achieving their goal of getting into medical school. Whether you are a pharmacy student or practicing pharmacist considering medical school, let this book help you decide whether that next step is right for you and, if so, what steps you need to take to be successful in your pursuit of the MD!"
